After the Orlando shooting claimed the lives of 49 people and injured dozens more, the largest mass shooting in modern American history, the debate over gun control is stronger than ever.

The issue divides the LGBT community, like the rest of the country, with some arguing that stricter gun laws will keep us safer and others argue that they will do just the opposite.

The Human Rights Campaign has announced it will begin lobbying for stronger gun control laws. Meanwhile, USA Today reports that the LGBT gun rights group Pink Pistols has seen their membership increase since the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Florida.
